Tamiya Lotus Type 72D Model Kit 1972 1/12 - Item #12046

with Photo Etched Parts

1/12 Scale

The Lotus 72 was certainly an attention-grabbing car, and not just because of the stunning performance which swept Jochen Rindt to a world championship in 1970.

An unmistakable wedge-shaped silhouette, cockpit-side radiators and torsion bar spring suspension were just some of the notable features in its avant-garde design.

Team Lotus were never ones to rest upon their laurels, and the 1972 iteration of the car, the 72D was updated across the board - including a high-profile change of sponsor and a striking black colour scheme.

Burgeoning Brazilian driving sensation Emerson Fittipaldi was right at home in the 72D, and his 5 victories from 12 races were enough to take him to a maiden drivers' championship and Lotus to yet another team championship crown.

Features:

• 1/12 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 400mm, width: 173mm, height: 87mm.
• Front and rear suspension with torsion bars is movable to recreate the actual mechanism of the car.
• The steering wheel moves front wheels.
• Detailed DFV engine features depictions of pipes and cables for the ignition system.
• The front fairing and cockpit fairing are detachable.
• Realistic synthetic rubber tires.
• Photo-etched parts are included for the ultimate finish.
• Moving depictions of complex front and rear suspensions employ coil springs.
• Comes with a driver figure.

The products arrived in a very solid box, were superbly packed allowing good protection with minimal material used.
Fabulous! Five stars!
Shame about Parcel Force delivery though. Tracked to be delivered on one day. Not delivered. No reason given. Arrived a day late when it wasn't expected. Parcel Force zero stars!

I found these guys through their ebay page about a year ago and I really like their selection of products. Slickshifts appear to stock the better quality stuff such as gyeon, angelwax, soft99, ik sprayers. Having gone through so many different brands I have to say between Gyeon and soft99 make up the majority of my kit and these guys are one of the best suppliers of these brands so if I need to top up on stuff, I just come straight here now :) Prices are great and delivery is very quick too. Keep up the good work!
